very nice work patchin the muddier spots, but...
i know i don't need to detail it for ya Pete.
also, just as you leave the ridge in the beginning of the back nine a tree was cut down in a nice tight little s curve.
was this done intentionally?
the stump seems to be healthy, i can't understand the logic of this one
that will end up a yard wider now once the short-cutting begins
or is all this preliminary work toward blacktop?
Hip III, 8 foot drops are 'medium' ? maybe for Utah, or some clearly marked spots in Copper Harbor.
not something that occurs naturally in these counties. i question the accuracy of your measuring tools
Like I said, it's in line with what skate/bike/snow parks build. I know that is probably a challenging notion to MMBA TC's and Land Managers, but I think the perspective on size needs to keep up with the progression of the sport. I believe we should build challenging enough features, that you could go out and ride any trail in the world safely. I think mountain biking is pretty great and I'd like younger people to get into it locally. If we don't support and promote the progressive aspects of the sport, it will be lost on the youth. Compared to sports like BMX, Snowboarding, and skateboarding, youth participation remains very low. just like you should advocate the building of novice features that you might not ride, you should advocate the building of advanced features.
